Is setting up test data in external systems expensive or time consuming?
Are you paying unnecessary third party system transaction fees every time you run the same suite of tests?
Are you waiting for an external team to deliver an API you need for functional testing of your system?
You cannot performance test your application because a third party system can’t handle the load?
If you answered yes to any of the above questions you might find interest in learning about service virtualization.
For one of our recent clients, we increased the test infrastructure availability from 2 days a week to 7 days a week. A different client was able to test its software before an external team delivered an API she depended on. We have achieved that by replacing parts of the testing environment infrastructure with virtual services. We created them with the industry leading software for service virtualization.
